Suzannah Lipscomb and Joe Crowley co-presented this three-part series, Bloody Tales of the Tower, on the gory true histories of the Tower of London, for NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC CHANNEL in April 2012. It has since also aired on CHANNEL FIVE.
The production company was True North.It was National Geographic Channel’s top-rated UK commission of 2012.
Here’s a trailer:
The series was chosen as a pick of the day by The Daily Mail, Radio Times, TV Times and The Sunday Times. Nat Geo TV also chose ‘Bloody Tales of the Tower’ as one of their viewing highlights for April 2012.
The series got incredible ratings: it was the UK’s highest rated commission and the 7th most viewed programme on National Geographic from 2006 to 2012. A second series has been commissioned, to be filmed in late 2012.
